Level II Trauma Center designation from the Texas Department of State Health Services
How We Earned It
We underwent a rigorous two-day review process to ensure Medical City Plano adheres to the highest standards for trauma care.
What It Means
Having a designated trauma center in Collin County is a tremendous benefit to the community, because it's best to receive care as soon as possible after an injury or accident. Trauma services must be delivered rapidly and efficiently by people who know how to care for injuries.
How It Sets Us Apart
Medical City Plano is the first hospital in Collin County to achieve this recognition. In addition, our hospital actively participates in the regional Emergency Medical Services (EMS)/Trauma System and has established relationships with the tertiary trauma centers in our service area. We also work closely with EMS providers to facilitate adequate pre-arrival notification, appropriate documentation and appropriate pre-hospital care. Medical City Plano is available to care for all major and severe trauma patients 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
